weekend recap and so on

  • Dave and I went out for Mexican & a movie Friday night. We saw 42, which was really good.
  • Saturday night we watched our niece go through grand march at the prom.
  • We met my mom and brother in Huron for lunch on Sunday. 
  • I started the couch-to-5k training again today.  I ran through each running session, with no breaks, and even ran an extra minute at the end.  Huge improvement from the other times I've started it.
  • 83 days until we run The Color Run. Saying I should have started the C25K weeks ago would be a huge understatement.  I am so excited though and can't wait to cross this off my bucket list.

  • We're a full month into spring and this is what it looks like outside today:

Yeah, not cool.  We got out of school at 1:30 today.  Third week in a row that we've had time off because of the snow. 

Spring has to arrive sometime, right?!

March & April goal

So my March goal was to lose 10 pounds. I lost 5.6 pounds so uhhh....not even close.  I started clean eating and Jillian's 30 day shred half way through the month and my weight didn't budge after that. So, so frustrating.  It is so discouraging to bust your ass and eat great and see no results (on the scale).  I know that I need to pay attention to how I feel, and that clean eating and exercising hard will eventually lead to the weight coming off.....blah, blah, blah. That number on the scale messes with my head though and so in order to actually pay attention to those other things, I'm staying of the scale this month.

I weighed in on April 1st and won't step on again until the 30th. Hopefully I'll have a better report next month!!
